    I was at Vivo 2012 & Mr Doane led the group in 1 minute of practice as he talked about the absolute importance of practice. It’s changed my playing in the past 3 weeks! It works!

  2. Ed Dorosh says:

    I also saw Mr. Doane’s 1 minute workshop and was blown away by it. It was the first time in my 62 years of life that anyone explained how to practice if you actually want to be good or even great..most people just said…practice an hour and then you’re free…oh to have had that information much earlier in life, but thanks to this giant, I have it now and it’s worth more than it’s weight in gold…..and Jim, you’re pretty darned good too…..
